CNH Industrial has announced the appointment of a new business director for its Iveco brand in Australia and New Zealand.
Bruce Healy will take on the role replacing outgoing business director, Michael Jonson, who will become chief financial officer for CNH Industrial in Australia and New Zealand.
Healy previously held the position of brand leader with Iveco’s sister brand Case IH. Prior to joining the company in 2011, he spent several years in other business roles in the agricultural equipment industry.
“During his time at Case IH, Bruce has had a very positive effect on its operations and helped us meet a great many corporate objectives,” said Michele Lombardi, CEO, CNH Industrial Australia and New Zealand.
“I know that Bruce’s business knowledge, hands-on approach and enthusiasm will be well received at Iveco Australia.
“He joins the brand at an exciting time and I’m sure he will further build upon the strong momentum that Michael and his team was able to establish over the last two years in particular.”
“I see a lot of opportunities to further grow the Iveco brand in Australia,” said Bruce Healy.
“The recent announcement of increased local manufacturing at our Dandenong facility is important for the workforce and for our existing and prospective customers who will enjoy the many benefits that locally-manufactured vehicles bring.
“Along with our locally-made products such as the Stralis, ACCO and the Delta and Metro bus chassis, we have access to the best from Europe in the form of the Daily and Eurocargo models, which have received numerous accolades at both global and local levels.”
“In short, we can offer the market a wide range of reliable and sustainable vehicles ranging from passenger car licence vans and light trucks, through to heavy duty prime movers. Prospective buyers need not look anywhere else,” he said.
